Whoever believes that science cannot be sexy or that art and science are at odds has yet to explore the work of Nomenclature. Co-founders and creative directors Karl Bradl and Carlos Quintero (CaFleurebon Best Creative Directors 2015) new Nomenclature Holy_wood, is a “neo-stalgic” tribute to Hollywood glamour, brought to us by perfumer Frank Voelkl. The soft, transparent patchouli of Firmenich Clearwood®, created in 2014, takes center stage in Holy_wood. In 2014 Firmenichembarked on award winning, seminal work on “patchoulol synthase”. Firmenich Clearwood® is the first fragrance ingredient created through “white biotechnology”, sustainable and eco-friendly methods that use living cells—yeasts, bacteria, enzymes, etc – to synthesize, via fermentation, new fragrance molecules. While Clearwood® was never intended to replace the complete scent profile of natural patchouli oil, this new raw material plays an essential supporting role in many contemporary fragrances.
